Poh Ling Yeow has remained a fan favourite ever since she appeared on TV screens in the first season of MasterChef in 2009 - and it seems as though the TV chef has barely aged in that time.

This year, Poh is appearing on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here, and fans were left stunned when her age was revealed during the season premiere.

"How the hell is Poh, 49? Good grief," one viewer wrote, while another added, "Poh is nearly 50. Still a babe."


People are also already joking they'll "riot" if she doesn't win after she missed out on winning MasterChef both times she appeared as a contestant.

"Is Poh a national treasure yet?" another fan joked.

I'm A Celeb's major twist

When Poh first arrived at camp, she was immediately tasked with a secret challenge by hosts Julia Morris and Dr Chris Brown.

The show's producers brought in a 'fake' influencer named The David (real name David Subritzky), with Poh needing to convince the other campmates that he was a real influencer in order to win food for the camp.

David is posing as a shoe designer with millions of followers with the reality star taking to Instagram to share a snap of himself ready for the jungle with the caption, "Fake it til you make it I say! I've scammed my way into the [I'm a Celeb] jungle!!!"

Last night, he told the celebs about how people like Miley Cyrus and Cardi B have worn his shoes with Poh pretending to be a fan in order to fool the others including former AFL star Nathan Buckley, former NRL star Beau Ryan and former Miss Universe Australia Maria Thattil to name just a few.

When he arrived on the show, David told the cameras, "I personally think I'm good at bulls***ting, but this is gonna be the ultimate test.

"I"m gonna have to lie about my manager that I've never had, events that I've never been to, it is going to be so hard, but I'm ready to take on this persona – I am The David, it's show time bitches."

Speaking to the cameras, Poh said she didn't realise The David was going to come so early in the game, "I think he's doing really well, he looks very natural."

Viewers loved the twist with one user writing, "I'm loving 'The David'."

"Love him already," another wrote, while someone else added, "I think The David is my favourite so far... and he's not even a celebrity."
